My husband and I started with an old ladder we found at the antique store for $8
As with all our DIYs, it collected dust for a few months till we figured out how to repurpose it on a dime.
Old Wooden Ladder Transformed Into a Country Chic Shelf
We did our best to make the ladder level (which we latter learned couldn't be done, so we added adtional wood in areas under each shelf to make them level)
We measured cheap wood and cut to the sizes according to the length we needed.
Nearly done with the woodwork
I gave the ladder a fresh coat of paint...
and did a black stain on the wood parts of each shelf and white washed the ladder.
I'll need to rearrange my trinkets... But overall, it's such a great addition to our eccentric country home!
